i have heard so far of monumental per portions. it's not just sean hannity it's the congressional budget office. it's going to drive up healthcare costs by trillions. it's going to lead millions out of the system. it's going to force millions into the government system. i think we have every reason to believe it results in rationira, it results in government making decisions as they try to save money including probably impacting the elderly the most. is there any aspect of mayannal sis that's wrong or am i pretty much on target? >> i think you are on target, two, one of the seminal moments occurred a couple weeks ago and last week when the congressional budget office, which by the way is selected the head of by the democrats came out with a devastating assessment of the effects of the healthcare plan that was with the senate. as you know it did not save money, it increased healthcare costs by over 200 and some billion dollars a year t. did not provide universal coverage. it was a devastating blow to what the president and democrats were trying to how moist off on american people.
